Undoped and Nd3+ doped lutetium niobate phases have been prepared by a conventional solid state reaction method using lutetium acetate and niobium oxide at 1250 °C for 6 h. X-ray diffraction patterns of the 6 mol% Lu3NbO7 sample exhibited a cubic fluorite single phase. Phase structure exhibited interesting crystallization behaviour depending on increasing Nd3+ concentration which led to a Lu3NbO7 single phase formation during the heat treatment process. SEM investigations were also in agreement… CONTINUE READING
